  1. Hi guys, First up it is Windows 7 not 6, that would be a trick... We have an existing OSD that works well with our older laptops but which randomly fails without on screen error with our newer Dell Laptops (7370 and 5570). I have injected the correct USB3/Nvme drivers into our windows 7 installation wim and if I build a simple task sequence that only installs window, the dell driver cab and sccm client then I get a successful finished build with the client and drivers all working nicely. As soon as I layer on our SOE applications (Office, Java, Adobe, SAP, Cisco VPN, Symantec AV) then I run into issues. The TS will install a few of the applications and then randomly reboots taking the computer to the login screen without resuming the OSD TS. In the logs the last actions do not have any errors or failure information and the screen shuts down without showing any errors before these weird reboots. Stranger still the task sequence is the same one that is working on our other existing computers so I know that the packages work etc. I have tried a few things to remedy this so far: - Reimport drivers - No change - Tried using different NIC's and models (Dell USB ethernet dongle as well as Dell WD15 dock) - No change on behaviour - Change task sequence application install order (simply resulted in the random reboots happening at a different point with a different application) - Change from auto detect and apply device drivers to apply specific device package (no change) - Set TS variables for SMSTSDownloadRetryCount, RetryDelay and MPListRequestTimeout per some guides online (no change) - Tried both UEFI imaging and Legacy imaging (same issues) - Tried using multiple different computers of the same model to rule out hardware failure (same behaviour) The task sequences install slower on these dell laptops as well. The install and initialise SCCM client step takes 20 minutes where it normally takes just a few minutes. Why would it be so much slower on one model over another I do not know. Any suggestions? Have been working on this for two weeks and starting to run out of ideas.
  2. The issue was the time was set wrong on the tablet. Fixed that and fixed my issue.
  3. Hey all, All of a sudden our SCCM 2012 R2 (Patched up to date) is having issues. When we PXE boot we get to the stage in the OSD where we have to enter our password for task sequences. As soon as we enter the password the task sequence fails (Before presenting a list of available tasks). I can't see anything interesting in the smspxe log on the server so I have looked at the SMSTS log on the clients. It is suggesting issues getting client identity along with some communication issues affecting time and information about the client. I have tried rebooting the SCCM server but that has not fixed it. I have checked the network access account being used and it is still valid (some of my googling suggested this could be why). I have tried making a minor change to our boot.wim so it would be redistributed but this has not helped. Any suggestions? Thanks! Dump of smsts where errors occur:
  4. Hi guys, Thanks for the guides have used them to do a bunch of great things with my SCCM environment. I inherited this system from someone else who set it up and has since left the company. We have 250 windows clients with a mix of Windows 7/8.1/10 across 6 sites. Our SCCM is now running current branch on Windows Server 2008 R2. We use WSUS for windows updates but I would like to move these into SCCM at some point. Our architecture is: CAS Server Primary Site server (where we are doing all our admin from) 5 Distribution Points in other states Having read through the guides here I believe that given our small number of clients we only need to have a Primary site and can do away with having a CAS. So I have two things from all this that I want to achieve. 1. Decomission the CAS and move to Primary server only environment with the 5 DPs 2. Migrate from Server 2008 to Server 2012 R2 3. Setup SUP on Primary server (needs to be able to service windows 10 clients so I think best to wait until I upgrade the host server to 2012 R2? I have found some bits of info about all of this but before I start trying to do any of it, I am wondering what advice the experts would give me. Do the three things I am aiming to do make sound logical sense? What order should I approach this in? And would it be easier or better to blow away our SCCM infrastructure and start fresh? Thanks
